“If you are about to watch me eat bacon or cheese there – why do you care,” reacted Smer’s chair Robert Fico on footage from camera that filmed him in the hunting cottage talking about the current cases, as quoted by the Sme daily.

Former PM Fico reacted to the videos that leaked to media that depict him, former interior minister of his government and people close to corruption scandals, discussing live cases at the cottage. General Prosecutor Maroš Žilinka and inspectorate of the Interior Ministry will deal with the leakage.

Fico really eats something on the video but meanwhile he also discusses ongoing cases with Marek Para, who is attorney of former Police Corps president, currently in the custody, Tibor Gašpar and his son Pavol Gašpar.

Miroslav Bödör, father of the charged Nitra oligarch Norbert Bödör, also in custody, was also present. The police believe Bödör Jr. was in charge of an organised criminal group that interfered with the work of the police.
